Mood Octopus finished! I got it done over the weekend, and I love it so much. Just look at their cute little face(s)! The two expressions are adorable and they make me so happy. It took a few tries on each of them to get the mouth the way I wanted, but it was way... Continue Reading →
All of the crochet on this project is finished! I got the last few arms done today, so now I have the whole weekend to get everything sewn together and add the finishing details. Every time I make an octopus I complain about having to make 8 arms. With this one I had to make... Continue Reading →
I've added a few more adorable tiny octopus arms today. At this rate I might actually get some knitting done on my cardigan this week too. The deeper I get into this project the more I realize how daunting the amount of sewing involved actually is. Still, I won't let that keep me from enjoying... Continue Reading →
I'm still slowly making my way through this project. I got a few octopus arms crocheted today, and might try to do one more this evening if my elbow cooperates. At this rate I should easily be able to get them all finished in time to sew everything together this weekend.
I managed to finish the yellow half of the octopus body today. Now I just have the yellow arms to finish and the stuffing and sewing to do. This is a fun little project, even if I do have to take my time with it. I can't wait to have it finished and sitting on... Continue Reading →
This weekend was fairly busy with family stuff so I didn't get a lot of crafting done. Instead I spent a long time kayaking and then hanging out with other people inside of my house with no masks on (everybody fully vaxed). It felt strange but was really nice. I did crochet a few rounds... Continue Reading →
One of my goals for this month was to make some amigurumi since it's been a while. I started this octopus over the weekend. The pattern has you essentially make two octopuses in different colors, that you sew together to make it reversible. I've finished crocheting all the parts for the blue side and am...

It's an Xmas miracle, I finished him in time! It's probably a good thing I finished with so little time to spare. If I had to look at his adorable little face for too long I would never be able to give him away!
I didn't quite get him finished this weekend, but it's close! He has eyes now, and he's not naked anymore. I couldn't find the right size safety eyes to use for him so I had to crochet some. They're not as shiny but I think it will look fine once the rest of the eyelid... Continue Reading →
Squeeee! He's looking so cute! And with an ear sewn on he definitely looks like Baby Yoda now. All those bits in front of him are his face bits like his nose and eyebrows. I can't sew them on until I get some black yarn to make his eyes. I'm a little sad that he's... Continue Reading →
